    I have no idea what happens in 81 days but yes, 7 days to the next Sink......
    First time we have attended after being recommended by our good friend 'Spike'.... and to be honest we're glad we took his advice. Easy to find, big carpark, big dance floor, excellent turn out and good music.... Sorted! The room was pretty full from early on and seats were getting scarce at 8.30. Jimmy Temple, up first played a good a set as I have heard him play, followed by top sets for the rest of the night. The dance floor was on the whole busy all night and the event seemed to attract some very good dancers too. The only downside was the room got very very hot. There was no air con and heat did make it a little uncomfortable. Although, I suppose it gave the night that hot sticky retro feel..... We will definitely go again in November. Hopefully it will be a few degrees cooler.
  2. A great mix of Northern Soul, Classic Soul and Tamla Motown all ovo. Resident DJ's plus special guest John Stackhouse 7pm - 12.30am £6 entry otd A Dave Faulkner promotion.
    Went to the Firs Soul Club a few months ago and the opportunity arose again, so off we set.... The club is very pleasant and welcoming with a nice chilled out friendly feel to it. The music is of the rare and underplayed variety but highly listenable and a lot of it highly danceable. The numbers were quite a bit down on our last visit... Apparently there is something afoot but I have no interest in childishness, I just go out for a good night. All the DJ's played great sets, with special mention to Sean Chapman and Len Cook. You will not hear anything from the top 500 but you will hear stuff that will make you realise what you've been missing. A nice touch is complimentary cake and samosas which has in no way influenced my review....lol. We will definitely go again at some point, you should too...
    After visiting a couple on months ago I knew the music would be good.... and it was. There was a better turn out than last time but by no means the amount of people this event deserves. No idea why? Next Friday, about 10 yards up the road, Ibstock will be full. How come that very crowd don't venture to this venue? That is one of the soul scenes mysteries. There was stuff you'd probably never heard of but good stuff, not that anoraky stuff that old duffers play to act cool. RnB, northern, bubblegum, motown and modern.... something for everyone. If you don't dance to it you'll enjoy listening. As always Colin and his crew of DJ's are all welcoming, friendly and passionate about what they play. The bar and staff are very good. The floor is excellent and the parking plentiful.
    The fact that this was a charity do on behalf of 2 very good causes and in memory of a really nice guy makes it a stand out event. The room and floor are excellent, the dj's all gave their time and played very good sets. The bar staff and bar prices are also very good. The music was heavy on the R&B... (Which suits me), topped up with great spells of northern soul, with smatterings of mod and reggae.... The good news being, very little motown.... Hoorah! If myself and my wife were not dancing we were enjoying listening to the music, I don't remember a duff track. The numbers could of been greater but there was an alldayer on close by which may of had an effect. The music did pretty much follow the same genres as the regular events Jo Prinsen puts on and I would advise going along for a slightly different night out and to experience one of the best dance floors you can find. Finally Jo, thank you for hosting what was a very good event. I also hope you made a lot of money along the way.

    Just back from Ibiza after attending the first 3 nights.... As I knew the case would be, it did not disappoint. The music, the atmosphere and the company were all just fantastic. The intimacy of the club coupled with the overall vibe makes it a unique experience. Everyone is treated as an old friend... Steve Spencer and all the DJ's genuinely have time for everyone, no one is left out. Every DJ payed such varied and diverse sets it was a joy to be in attendance. Probably my favourite track was Wade in the water by Little Sonny, played out by Eddie Piller. Steve's music policy of anything goes is evident in the way that each DJ performs his or her sets..... Yes, they play from their hearts... yes, they play for themselves but mainly they play for their audience... and the audience for their part respond in the best way they can..... by dancing all night. The only downside is that each year we attend the event becomes a little bigger which could lead to it out growing its current location. This is a concern that Steve Spencer is aware of and am sure he will not let it happen. On one hand I am saying 'come along and have a truly fabulous time' and on the other hand I am saying 'but not too many of you'....lol.... Thank you Steve.... You have put on another great event. I truly hope we can be with you next year. Modified is the highlight of our year.

    My quest at the moment is finding venues and events which don't reel off the same playlist month on month. This is one of those little gems which will not disappoint. It will be our third time at the event and the last two have been bang on. The addition last year of Eddie Piller just made it even better. This is one of the friendliest events we've attended. The promoter, Steve Spencer is welcoming and friendly, with a real passion for the music. All the dj's play great sets, the music is varied and guaranteed not to be the same old same old..... Really looking forward to this one......

    All in all a pretty good venue and event.... Dj's and music were good but numbers were a little low. The ska/reggae room was bang on the money but the low numbers meant it was sporadic on attracting dancers. Parking was easy and the bar prices very reasonable.

    Yes the event was very well attended, yes the dance floor was full... at times, yes the DJ's were good. In fact the night was good without ever been great. Vernon Smith played a pretty good set but was on too early. (Why pay for a guest to play to an empty dance floor?) People were still arriving and settling down. It is one of those events with a tried and trusted play list and format which will keep the regulars happy.
    Carrying on my quest to find venues and events which don't play the same track list week in and week out we went along to the first outing of 'Soul Express'.... We had a very good night indeed. Friendly, welcoming atmosphere, an excellent host, a very eclectic, enjoyable mix of music all night.... Music to tap your foot to, music to dance to, some rare and underplayed but not the sort that 'soul anoraks' listen to.... More the sort of 'this is different' in a good way. In a nutshell, I would say a pretty successful first night. The venue is fairly small and gives off a more intimate feel, there was a good turnout, the bar was appropriately staffed and there was never a problem getting served. The car park is quite small, so if you want your car off road you need to arrive early. I would recommend boarding the 'Soul Express' .... It's the first stop to a great weekend.
  8. I which case... 3 of my favourite garage tracks.....
  9. The Baroques - Mary Jane (1968) 2 of my favourites.... Along with The Seeds - Pushing too hard (Probably not garage though)....
